    I`ve never seen anyone post anything near to saying their IQ was less than 100. Most of such boasting is just plain wrong. In fact, anyone who says they have a superior IQ probably has an inferior one, since their intelligence should be apparent from their actions/words etc.

    Anyway that graph was pretty funny. I wish it was accurate :(

    Image comparing religiosity vs IQ, and poverty:

    (IQ goes from 60 on the bottom to 110 on the top, you can`t see it on the black background).
    To understand why this is relevant, please read: Race and Intelligence.

    However, I`m happy to give up on the Correlation vs Causation principle all together.

    Prime: It`s a function of money.

    You have several possibilities for causation here, not limited to:
    Poverty leads to religion. (Desperation argument).
    Poverty leads to low IQ. (Education argument).
    Religion leads to poverty. (The "God`ll do it" argument).
    Religion leads to low IQ. (The "faith alone" argument).
    Low IQ leads to Religion. (The "I can`t figure it out" argument).
    Low IQ leads to Poverty. (The "evolutionary" argument).

    (Note, the in brackets are my own summary, not official terms).

    You could also have a combination of these.
    Low IQ -> Poverty -> Religion.

    However, you have only one which people tend to agree on: Poverty is the starting point.

    I would suggest that the first two points are both correct.
    Poverty -> No Education -> Low IQ.
    Poverty -> Need for hope -> Religion.

    Hence a correlation between the two.

    "primetimekin

    yes, weird isn`t it? I work in a university science department surrounded by hundreds of professional scientists who are all atheists. And you know what, people keep publishing their work, giving them grant money and even have the cheek and stupidity to develop new technologies and effective medicines and new understanding of cancer out of their idiotic so called "research". Why this continues to happen is completely beyond me, but then I`m only an atheist........ Luckily as any highly intelligent buddhist will tell you, you might as well not bother, your going to get reincarnated anyway.

    This would also possibly demonstrate (assuming the graph in the link is accurate) why certain religions place where they do.

    I would argue that those with greater levels of poverty would turn to religions with the greater support structure.

    Though that`s a subjective term, that correlates well with my impressions of various religions and their placement on the graph.

    Finally, this, though I`m not sure how much I trust an article I got from cracked.com.

    As far as the religion and iq thing, the larger the pool of people the lower pool`s iq will inherently become. Trying to compare the iq of a group with far fewer people to a much larger group is going to yield skewed results, the data is far too unreliable to quantify anything.

    Ok, I lied.

    Fancy, can you please please please put up a source for the Religion/IQ chart before I lose my job by spending all my work hours looking for it?

    Predictions: If it`s real, it is either a study done in the Southern States, New York, or Israel, probably New York. The reasoning being the population spread (Israel/NY have a high per Capita number of Atheists and Jews, which pushes them towards the average, whereas the outliers get rarer as you trend outward. A IQ average in the top 3% for a Shintoist is phenomenal so it does seem unlikely to be accurate).

    Baal - I think the source is supposed to be the International Journal of Society and Religion, 2003 edition.

    However, I`ve searched repeatedly and there doesn`t seem to be one. There`s an International Journal of Religion and Society, but as you can see its first volume was published in 2007.

    And there`s a Journal of Religion and Society, but according to their archives its 2003 edition doesn`t have any article by Trevelyan.

    It seems unfeasible that there`s no mention of the journal itself anywhere on the internet, even if we can`t read the article in question. So there`s a possibility the reference contains a typo, but I think it`s more likely it`s a fake.

    The IQ one (IQ being a test of how good you are at tests)

    I agree with Baal - education impacts on it, and yes there has to be correlations between poverty and religion and proverty and education. I still think its bogus though, because you can`t be that bright if you believe in invisible pink unicorns. :)

    Baal`s point about hidden factors reminds me of the research that showed men who shaved have less heart attacks.

    Loved all but the IQ chart. It`s not funny at all. I`m Protestant, so the closest thing I match up with is Baptist. There are smart Christians, and retarded Christians; like there are smart buddhists, and retarded buddhists; and even smart atheists, and retard atheists. And OMG there are even Scientologists and Mormons with high IQs! Why do atheists hate Christians so much?

    I refuse to believe in scientologists with high IQs. Well, except maybe the few at the head of the cult who`re getting all the money.

    As to the final question, I would assume it`s similar to the reason Christians hate atheists so much.

    Yesssss
    Shinto beats out everything else in terms of IQ!(Feel free to call me a weeaboo, if you want- I don`t mind)
    Also, as a former Episcopalian, I`m a little saddened to see them that low on the chart, but at the same time, they`re the smartest of all the Christian denominations, so that`s a plus.
    And even though I`ve met a few really smart Baptists, I`m gonna have to say that their place on the chart is pretty accurate- for every intelligent Baptist I`ve met, I`ve seen at least eight who are dumber than a rock. (Sorry if I offended anyone.)
